Do you guys seriously think Catwoman would have still flopped had it been as good as The Dark Knight, with the same kind of marketing push?
Batman is Batman. No superhero can compare to him in terms of popularity with the audience except for maybe Spider-man, but the crappy Spider-man 3 and mediocre reboot have harmed that brand.
Replace "The Dark Knight" with "Iron Man", then. Iron Man had arguably even less brand recognition than Wonder Woman (or Catwoman), but it wouldn't change my argument at all.

The best I can see a Wonder Woman movie doing is around Thor or Captain America levels if it is good, but it could also easily fail as badly as the recent Green Lantern movie.
I think WB would be perfectly happy if a WW movie did Thor/Captain America-size business. And the risk of failure exists for every movie, especially if the movie in question is/looks as bad as GL.
